Flash Movie Review: A Better Life
The sacrifices one makes for a loved one and especially when that loved one is a child. What I believed to be an honest depiction, this movie had a lot of heart in it. The story is about Carlos Galindo, played by Demian Bichir (Che: Part Two, Don’t Tempt Me), who is trying his best to keep his son Luis, played by Jose Julian (Mi Verdad), on a path to better opportunities–to stay in school and out of the gangs. This meant Carlos was willing to do anything he could to make a better life for his son than himself, an illegal immigrant. For a movie to be good, it has to move me, make me think. Watching the challenges, the heartbreak, the love; I was certainly moved by this picture. I know there are worse hardships, more tragedy in one’s life; however, I felt this movie was truthful and worth your time to view.
